29 Mar

Hey! I’ve moved!

Visit anowlsnest.wordpress.com. You’ll find all the old posts, comments, and photos that you see here… and more! I’m turning “mom blog”. ah!

I would love if you head over to an owl’s nest and subscribe – there is a convenient little link on the right hand side bar. You’ll get an email every time I write a new post!

Also, if you click on the tab on top called “from my nest to yours” you can see my Amazon shop with products that I enjoy or that I have reviewed. If you purchase one via my shop I will make a little bit of $$. 🙂 Contact me if you want to do any amazon shopping!!

See you at an owl’s nest!

“good” morning?

25 Mar

I just entered a contest. You can enter too, right here.

If you’re interested read the entire post before scrolling down to the contest rules. It brings up some good points, none of which I’m incredibly good at currently since my mornings still seem so new and different. I love the author’s second point – to shower and get dressed ASAP. Olive doesn’t really let me do that right now but I have high hopes. 🙂

aye!

25 Mar

I think it’s been a few days since my last post – I apologize. And this one isn’t going to be anything amazing – I apologize again.

I had been quite busy cleaning up the giant pile of things that my dad brought over the past week or so but that suddenly, and unfortunately, came to a halt when I went downstairs to wash Olive’s diapers on Tuesday morning and I noticed a somewhat significant amount of water on the floor. A leak! And then I found another leak! And then another! Basically we have what seems like an underground spring under the stairs where, previously unknown to us, there is no floor. In addition to that little pond we have a few foundation leaks that we were already aware of from large spring rain storms but we have never seen them flowing quite like this! So Tuesday was spent dividing my time between Olive and the basement. Thankfully a friend from work came over to hold Olive for a while so I wouldn’t feel like I was abandoning her all day. She also brought with her cookies and chocolate milk. Thanks Amanda! 🙂

The basement drama continued into Wednesday which made my day equally as hectic. Thankfully Brooke & Scott came over with dinner ingredients and made a yummy meal while we waited for Tyler get home from work.

On Thursday Olive and I woke up early and got ready to take Tyler to work as we had an appointment to get the Camshaft Position Sensor replaced on the car. While waiting for that we sat at Cupcake, across the street from Fraser, and Laura, Jayme, and Ann came to visit me & Olive. We saw Meredith on our way to pick up the car. We also made a quick stop at the post office. We survived our first day out alone! Thank you Olive for being asleep most of the time, not being hungry, and not needing to be changed. 🙂

Tyler has unfortunately had a hectic week as well. In addition to manning the basement when he got home from work his work duties involved snow removal (hopefully the last time of the season – fingers crossed!) and things involved with having America’s Got Talent filming at the Orpheum. He was not enthusiastic about that. And it kept him at work late.

Olive news: She smiled twice on Thursday morning! Prior to that we had only seen smiles in her sleep.

So now it’s the weekend (Friday, Friday, gettin’ down on Friday…) where we will hopefully find some sleep, less water, and some time to get a few things done. Some of my priorities for the next few days are to buy a new vacuum, list some things on etsy, and continue to clean up the living room and dinning room. Exciting, eh?! 😉

frostonflower.com will unfortunately be down for the next two months. I was unhappy with my host and their outrageous renewal fee. I have to wait 60 days to get my domain again. So.. I’m not out of business.. I’ll just be relaunching.. bigger and better!

big day.

burrito baby bug.

At least my birthday was a big day for Olive. She lost her umbilical cord stump while taking a bath. She also took a bottle for the first time rather successfully. Last night we had a bottle waiting so Tyler could feed her and I could stay ‘sleeping’. Oh it was lovely.

My dad came into town yesterday afternoon. It looks like we have a roommate – he brought nearly every single thing left in his house that belongs to me.. and more! oh dear!

happy (?) birthday

10 Mar

Olive, Honey, and I are celebrating my birthday. We’re also mourning the loss of our best friend Tyler who had to return to work today. In celebration of my birth I’m currently making myself a big mug of hot cocoa. I’m also washing towels. Happy birthday?

*update* Olive got a gift in the mail today. I didn’t get any gifts in the mail today. I didn’t even get a card in the mail today. It’s official! It’s all about Olive! 🙂

I’m going to run out of space if I keep posting photos.

But she’s so cute.

And these aren’t even the “nice” photos.
